When you fly into Dakar, the first thing you see is this ginormous statue, The African Renaissance Monument. It is huge and we definitely plan to climb to the top before we leave.
We met with the Minister of Culture, Racine Senghor, a great connection through Kelly's friend Habib.  We talked about Senegalese literature and he shepherded the process for our film permit which we received gratuit.  Per the blogs, a film permit isn't necessary, but good thing we got it, because day 1 of filming and folks are asking.
